Dr. Ali-Dib got his PhD in theoretical Astrophysics from France in 2015 where he published multiple peer review papers on the formation of planets. He then moved to the University of Toronto on a postdoctoral fellowship where he got interested in Machine Learning. He started applying ML techniques in astrophysics to emulate complex physical models and accelerate slow and inefficient data analysis tasks. His area of expertise, in addition to fundamental physics and math, are analytical analyses, numerical computing methods, high performance computing, Classical Machine Learning, and neural networks. Dr. Ali-Dib is currently Lead Data Scientist at Senso, an intelligent product recommendation platform empowering sales and marketing professionals to build better customer relationships throughout the sales cycle.
